Application options

Categories of membership with ASSA are dependent on the individual’s interest in and impact on the actuarial profession, access to activities and events offered, and receipt of relevant communication. All membership applications are reviewed through the ASSA Council and Admissions governance process for approval.

N.B: Education transactions toward obtaining an ASSA designation require admission as an ASSA student member.
